Fast-Track Appointments

Patients seeking healthcare at Loma Linda University Health’s Primary Care have a new option for securing quick appointments when it comes to certain easily treatable conditions.

Fast-Track is intended as an alternative to Urgent Care for simple illnesses or injuries that will not require an X-ray or other ancillary service. These appointments are available Mondays–Thursdays from 9 a.m.–7 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

Fast-Track appointments may be made by calling 909-558-6600 between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays–Thursdays and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.

Unlike same-day appointments, which may be scheduled with many providers for any need, chronic or acute, Fast-Track is staffed by a designated clinician each day to handle quickly treatable needs. The Fast-Track clinician may be a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. 

“I encourage everyone to establish a relationship with a primary care provider,” said Roger Woodruff, MD, director of Primary Care. “However, occasionally there is a need for a quick visit if you are not feeling well. Already, patients have responded with gratitude for same-day appointments, and it is with the goal of further serving our employees’ same-day needs that we established the Fast-Track clinic.”

The following are examples of simple illnesses or injuries that qualify for Fast-Track service:
